  • Digital badges align with workforce modernization and rapid technological changes often unmet through traditional education programs. 
  • Digital badges are optimized for sharing on social media and professional networks such as LinkedIn to build awareness, value and demand for candidates.
  • Digital badges and skills-based hiring helps companies create an unbiased, diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce.
  • Digital badges allow an easy achievement verification process between students and employers.
  • Digital badges help bridge higher education and employment through marketable digital credentials for students, beyond courses and grades.
